Nikon announces D3200 - 24 MP APS-C
« on: April 19, 2012, 02:44:58 AM »
the new nikon looks like a killers entry level camera with 24mp for under $700, yes the iso performance will probably be shocking but will people who buy even understand that.

I'm sure he will be very happy, if canon comes out with something like this i dont see what they are going to do to the 70d/7d mk2

like the little wi-fi. sensible price for once....
If life is all about what you do in the time that you have, then photography is about the pictures you take not the kit that took it. Still it's fun to talk about the kit, present or future :)

It appears that even most reviewers don't understand it -- in the opposite sense: I've seen comparisons between the 5D3 and the D800 where the conclusion was that the D800 was significantly worse at higher ISOs; others noted that the difference went away when downsizing the D800 to 5D3 resolution.

Put together it sounds like the conclusions about the D800 being worse were drawn from 100% crops, i.e. comparing the same number of pixels, rather than, as would be necessary for a valid conclusion, the same sensor area. Sigh.

nikon just announced a 24 MP aps-c camera.

nikon and canon have truly switched paradigmas in only 1 year....


http://www.dpreview.com/news/2012/04/19/Nikon-D3200-with-WiFi-Option

rumor is it has the A77 / NEX-7 sensor...  or a slight modification of that sensor.



ps: i would not have started this thread if others would post in the right forum categorys.
but i don´t search the EOS BODIES forum for nikon threads. so i thought there was no thread about the D3200 yet.

and why would a normal customer buy such a 36MP camera to begin with?
to have the same noise and same details on A3 prints that he has with a camera that produces more manageable files?

or no wait he buys it for extrem cropping of bird images... and then has to live with the noise.

nah.... if i would buy a D800 i KNOW i would use it for LOW ISO shots.
studio shots or landscape shots when i use a tripod.

I actually see this as more of a challange to Canon than the D800 considering that entry level buyers arent tied to a system and are more likely to be swayed by high MP whether they need them or not.

If they release a 650D that merely adds a few bells an whistles then its hard to see them not losing serious ground to Nikon. In order to avoid that I'd say they either need to introduce a new sensor with 20+ MP or up the 650D's AF/FPS performance a good deal.

Ohhh shitt, full time auto focus during video! Going to be a big selling point in the entry level dslr market, Canon are going to have to step their game up with the T4i..
Gear: 5D Mk III <> 70-200mm ƒ/2.8L IS II USM <> 50mm ƒ/1.2L USM <> 8-15mm ƒ/4L  USM <>  100mm ƒ/2.8L  Macro IS USM <> 40mm ƒ/2.8 <> 24-70mm ƒ/2.8L II USM

I'd like Canon's response to Nikon's two latest releases to be as such:

1. 7D mk2…..Stills only upgrades with ISO improvements, dual cards and same AF as 5D3, no video improvements (keep target price range)
2. T4i/70D…..video AF with 7Dmk1 AF trickle down. CF Card.

Improve the IQ, Improve the NR, Improve the ISO across the board and do it without getting MP crazy.
